Shelf Life (2013)
27min · Short, Drama · 1 January 2013
Jo, 36, is in a long-term relationship with a younger man that has become one-sided and fractious over time. One eventful day a small mistake forces her to question their relationship. It seems as if she is never good enough, everything is on his terms and that they want different things in life. Jo confronts him and remembers their past love and the times he behaved selfishly. Why does she put up with him? Is it because they previously shared an intense love, will he return to being the man he once was, or is she afraid of starting over again at her age? The story explores modern life-styles, societal pressures on women, the insecurity of aging and feeling trapped in a world of choices.
